Walmart Pilot Project Leads to Further Success

One of Walmart's consultants, Kimley Horn (KH), recently submitted a parking lot project in Georgia to NRMCA for the Design Assistance Program, reports Southeast Senior National Resource Director Amy Miller. The work done with KH through Walmart and its pilot program has brought the benefit of using concrete in parking lots to this consultant as well as many other consultants. KH then asked NRMCA to design a pavement section for it along with providing a coordinating jointing  plan. This project is the first of many similar projects KH will be designing in Georgia.  

"Prior to the pilot project, this parking lot would have most certainly been designed in asphalt and would have never been given a second thought," Miller said. "Creating options for owners that drive value further enhances the relationship between a designer and an owner. The Walmart pilot program has allowed us exposure to many national consultants and integration into those accounts. They are beginning to see the value they can bring owners through inclusion of concrete."
